Jimmy Fallon Returns to 'Tonight Show,' Details Horrifying Finger Injury
By Zach Seemayer
Jimmy Fallon was behind TheTonight Show desk for the first time on Monday after seriously injuring his hand this past month. Stepping out to perform his monologue, the 40-year-old host sported a sizable bandage over his fingers, touting that he would be giving "high fours" for a while.
Despite his chipper mood, Fallon explained that he almost had to have the finger amputated due to the severity of the injury. He said it required a six-hour surgery and that he stay in the ICU for 10 days.
"Apparently, the odds aren't great and usually they just cut your finger off," Fallon told The Tonight Show audience, adding, "I won't get feeling back for eight weeks."
